...more like the two day dress. Reading the small hint on pattern package would have clued me into the fact that it takes more than an hour.
I decided to make myself a couple of dresses for summer. This is McCall's 9172, which states the "1 Hour Dress*". I just get a kick out of McCall's use of the *. Their way of sneaking in the important footnote at bottom that reads," sewing machine time only". Well, this might be true once alternations have been made on muslin, but this dress from start to finish took me two days. It took me a day for laying out the pattern, cutting, sewing, and altering; and a second day for the hemming, making thread loop for button, and sewing on button. Heck, just to get the thread loop for button correct took over an hour. The dress is easy to make and comfy to wear. It looks great on the mannequin since the mannequin's waste is smaller than mine and bust is larger than mine. Well, I'm no spring chick anymore, and I don't notch my belt like seen in picture, but this dress works for me.
